Laser Therapy

Laser Therapy

Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is a form of alternative medicine that applies low-level (low-power) lasersor light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to the surface or orifices of the body. Whereas high-power lasers are used in laser medicine to cut or destroy tissue, low-power lasers are claimed to relieve pain or to stimulate and enhance cell function.

The effects of LLLT appear to be limited to a specified set of wavelengths of laser, and administering LLLT below the dose range does not appear to be effective.

 

Laser therapy may be used to:

  • shrink or destroy tumors, polyps, or precancerous growths
  • relieve symptoms of cancer
  • remove kidney stones
  • remove part of the prostate
  • repair a detached retina
  • improve vision
  • treat hair loss resulting from alopecia or aging
  • treat pain, including back nerve pain

 

 

Lasers can have a cauterizing, or sealing, effect and may be used to seal:

  • nerve endings to reduce pain after surgery
  • blood vessels to help prevent blood loss
  • lymph vessels to reduce swelling and limit the spread of tumor cells
  • Lasers may be useful in treating the very early stages of some cancers, including:
  • cervical cancer
  • penile cancer
  • vaginal cancer
  • vulvar cancer
  • non-small cell lung cancer
  • basal cell skin cancer

 

For cancer, laser therapy is usually used alongside other treatments, such as surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation.

Laser therapy is also used cosmetically to:

  • remove warts, moles, birthmarks, and sun spots
  • remove hair
  • lessen the appearance of wrinkles, blemishes, or scars
  • remove tattoos

Laser therapy is one the top best modern technic for our patients.
